Could you be a bit more specific?

What version of QlikView are you running?

Is it licensed?

Which files (like a link to the topic you found them in) are you trying to open?

What are the errors you are getting?

May you live in interesting times!

seems u r using personal qlikview edition,that is causing the issue.

if not the case,u can reapply ur license on ur qlikview desktop version that will resolve the issue.


You can't open without license on your Qlikview software. Must need license either by contractor / Partner.

Before develop something, think If placed (The Right information | To the right people | At the Right time | In the Right place | With the Right context)

You can't open any qvw files with out license.

but still there is chance to open 4 or 5 other applications not more than that


Qlikview has 2 versions

1.Licensed Version

*You can open any the QVW files i.e. developed on your machine /other machines

*Requires license

1.Personal  Edition

*You can open only the QVW files developed on your machine

*Does not requires license

Those are "recovery attempts" and you should keep those to recover your own work in case of crashes and PC transfers, not waste them on files of total strangers.

Hi Avinash,

I don't have licensed version. i am currently a Qlikview learner.

Thanks for you support and your Help




I think u r using Personal edition and u don't have licensed one.

So with personal edition u can open only 5 qlikview files generated by others.But as many as if u have created them.

So u need licensed version to see others files
